| Experts believe that the Supreme Court is unlikely

| In five minutes of searching, I found this mention
| in a book that Windows 98 offered an option to use
| image thumbnails in Explorer. Cygnus originally
| filed their patent on June 12, 1998, but Windows
| 98 was already in beta at that point -- I was
| testing it at that time -- and by that time
| Microsoft probably had the feature implemented.
| And I wonder, where did Microsoft get the idea
| for the feature? Was it really a totally original
| idea, or did they have some earlier example
| they were following?
